Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
SkyPilot Networks, a leading provider of carrier-class broadband wireless networks, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Minerva, a value-added distributor based in Dubai. Minerva will market SkyPilot's line of broadband wireless products throughout the Middle East, Pakistan and Africa.
"SkyPilot has provided service providers around the world with cost-effective, long-range, and high-capacity wireless equipment," said Alexander Allen, CEO of Minerva. "Our channel partners are always looking for the best wireless products available, and SkyPilot's solutions provide our partners with enough uniqueness and flexibility to effectively enter new broadband wireless markets."
SkyPilot's equipment not only enables wireless Internet service providers to deploy broadband Internet access and VoIP to subscribers, but also provides the wireless backhaul to enable outdoor Wi-Fi access as well as video surveillance and automatic meter reading (AMR) for municipal networks.
SkyPilot's unique capabilities come from an innovative approach to combining point-to-point backhaul, mesh, and a point-to-multipoint base station into a single solution. The SkyGateway and SkyExtender are base stations that provide point-to-multipoint connectivity to low-cost SkyConnector customer premise equipment (CPE) in the 5 GHz spectrum. These base stations also integrate a synchronous multi-hop wireless backhaul that greatly extends coverage range and increases spectral capacity. In addition, these products can be integrated with long-range Wi-Fi access points at 2.4 GHz and 4.9 GHz for mobile public safety.
"Minerva has a proven ability to expand the broadband wireless market throughout the Middle East, Pakistan and Africa" said Dennis Stipati, Vice President of worldwide sales at SkyPilot. "Their focus on combining technology with a community of wireless resellers represents considerable value to SkyPilot and we are enthusiastic about working together with our new partner."
